2011 SS vs 2012 370z

Hey im curious which would win a drag race.
This d bag was driving like an idiot in traffic yesterday on my way home from work, cut me off and a few others changing lanes like he was going somewhere while his head was bobbing to some awful sounding music. I got along side of him and gave him the old high sign from the little rascals and he told me I was a little gay for that. I laughed in his face and told him he was gay and so was his car and if he wanted to see how much his car could really do I would be more then happy to meet him at the local dragstrip.
He said he would tonight and I am definatly going tonight so I just want to get an idea of how fast these cars are. my best run so far is a 12.8 109.9 mph. But I also just put in the new MAF sensor a couple days ago and feel it pulls harder then it did before. Whats your opinions, and of course I dont mind getting beat if thats how it turns out but he didnt look like he was much of a driver in his traffic driving so I might be the better driver in this case.

Maybe 3 have ever hit high 12s. He will run a mid 13. You will crush him.

Cool so I should be able to back up my statements to him. Not that I really care much, just when someone has no sense of humor and acts like an ass its good to be able to put them in thier place...... thats if he even shows up.

It really doesn't matter whether it is the nismo version or not. Yeah, the nismo has a few extra horsepower but the added weight is enough to negate them.

I know it doesn't matter I still said he'd win just saying it'll be worse. For what's the difference the nismo has exterior changes and has 350 vs 332 I believe

That's true, but I was saying that due to the added weight, a nismo 370z is not faster than a base 370z.

Yeah, if it takes a "good driver" to run high 12s. There must only be a few "good" drivers in the entire country, because its quite rare to see a stock 370z run high 12s.

I've never seen one run faster than a 13.6 locally here if that tells you anything :-)
